Don’t want an early exit for either, but Pearly has smashed it this round.

Very very tough to call.

But I think alan nagsworth pips it for me with his second, Gervais-baby in space, Hawking with his 'GriefChair' and demented Gervaisheart with cigar.

Nags' second is beautiful stuff but I'm going with Pearly for his demented Eraserhead shot.

Aw fuck, so much excellent beating on Gervais and I have to choose which ones I like the most. Do you know how difficult that is?

I think I'm going to take the same logic as Poirot and vote for Pearly on the basis that the last shot is something Gervais would actually consider a good idea.

Aagh! I don't want to have to choose.

The standard is really high from both players and I think I'm going to have to choose Pearly simply because the server has an advantage (to my mind, anyway).

Pearly's title defence is still going strong; he's through to the quarter-finals with a 17-7 victory here.

Good game alan, and thanks for playing.

I think that big sway in votes is a testament to Pearly's skill and humour and the win is most certainly earned. Both shots were corkers but that first one was pretty much unbeatable, and I had a really hard time thinking up a return. I think I did a decent job, since my aim was to be funny with good measure of amusing text and imagery and a fair whack of smart referencing, but honestly that Andy Millman/Eraserhead gag is just superb. I could smell defeat right there and then.

My first idea for a return was to make a dystopian scene where Gervais controls the media and there's no escaping his work and influence. Tabloids reviewing a new film as "Gervaisian", that sort of thing. I took a POV photo of myself in the bath and was going to depict myself holding a razor to my wrist like Ricky does in After Life, unable to cope with the world any more, potentially with a robot grief dog at the side of the bath saying "wat r u doing, i require nourishment" or something. The problem was that it was too heavy-handed and I just couldn't think of a way to make it funny, which was essential, so I scrapped it.

Here's the photo I was going to use:



ANYWAY! Pearly, you really deserved this victory, so congratulations to you. :)

I set the 10 second timer and held the phone between my chin and chest. I know what it's like to suffer for my art.

I think you should lay the whole blueprint out and then it can be constructed a bit at a time over centuries, like the Sagrada Familia.

Great match, alan. Two excellent shots though I'm sad to have missed the robot grief dog demanding sustenance.

I think "IT'S MY ACTUAL KNOB" definitely would have clinched it for you.
